I'm a Clyde, but I'm ok with it...
Hello everyone, I call myself Bionicycle, but my first name is Bill. I am a Clydesdale/Mega Clydesdale. I just wanted to say hello to all my fellow Clydesdale/Athena’s and tell you all just how inspirational so many of your stories are.
Like many of you, I didn’t know if a bicycle would hold me; I am sad to say, I’m weighing in at around 275lbs, right now. I was afraid that my bike would break, or that other cyclist would criticize me… But, having read some of your post I now don’t care what other people think… Because I have came to realize that there are a lot of us larger people out there trying to enjoy bicycling.
I took cycling up again because I need a low/no impact form of exercise(I had my left hip replaced about a year ago), and cycling seemed like it fit the bill pretty well, besides I used to love riding when I was younger, and it is something my wife and I can both do together.
I’m looking forward to reading and finding out more information about cycling from all my fellow Clyde’s and maybe someday I may have the knowledge to help out any future Clyde’s that find this site…
Well, that is all for now… I hope to get to know and communicate with many of you in the future…
Now if it just wasn’t so darn hot here(95 heat index 105
), maybe I would go riding…
